Yana Yunusova, PhD

Yana Yunusova, Ph.D., CCC-SLP is an Associate Professor in the Department of Speech-Language Pathology at University of Toronto, an Associate Scientist at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre and a Senior Scientist at the Toronto Rehabilitation Institute.
Dr. Yunusova's research is focused on understanding the effects of neurologic disease on speech production. At present, her research program is composed of three independent but related themes. The first theme is focused on issues of early diagnosis and subtyping of the bulbar form of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). The second theme is devoted to the study of neuroanatomical underpinnings of motor control and cognitive deterioration in bulbar ALS. The third is concentrated on the development of new movement-based treatment methods, using visual feedback, for treating motor speech disorders. In addition to conducting research, she teaches at the graduate level in the area of motor speech disorders.
